Re: scout frame with car body

I've got a Jeep Wrangler body on an '80 turbo diesel. It took some very major mods to make it work. I had to shorten the frame and driveshafts several inches. I also had to move the radiator to the rear and run coolant pipes to the back. You can veiw a picture at
Other mods include spring-over-axle lift, rear springs moved under framerails for more articulation, custom rub-rails and diamond plate alum fenders, full roll cage, three inch exhaust with no muffler.
